I am a recovering entrepreneur but I still understand the blood, sweat and tireless hours that go into creating a unique and meaningfull business. When I discover honest and hard-working entrepreneurs I like to help in any way possible. In this case I came across the story of two college friends that I knew were destined for success. I can’t say enough about this power couple and their amazing new business.
Both Emily Ann and John were superstars in college and became the perfect sweetheart couple and ended up marrying and residing Mobile, AL. After working a few years they placed their house on the market thinking maybe it would sell but for 10 months they didn’t get a single bite. After 2 years of working for Distinguished Young Women, Emily Ann decided it was time for her to move in a new direction. At the same time she decided to leave her job their house which received no bites in 10 months had sold. They were both faced with the idea of buying a new “forever” house and continuing to lead their normal lives or challenging themselves to an amazing adventure. They decided to take the leap into the unknown that has since led them on cross-country drives, bunking with friends, meeting new people and recently settling in Texas to start Tin Roof Cutting Boards.
Tin Roof Cutting Boards started as an idea from one of John’s business acquaintances that owned a sawmill and created cutting boards for family as gifts. Emily Ann is now running the online store, which sells a variety of cutting boards. They pride themselves in creating the finest hand crafted cutting boards available. They specialize in reclaimed Pecan wood and use a variety of hardwoods that include Walnut, Maple, Oak, Pecan, Mesquite, Padauk, Purpleheart, and Teak, depending on availability.
Currently they offer six standard cutting boards plus specialty designs including The Garden Chef, The Outdoors Man, Wildwood Gourmet, Spring Orchard Walnut and Engraving. These make great gifts for all occasions. I am definitely going to be ordering some engraved boards for wedding presents!
They are offering free shipping on their website right now plus DL Report readers get 20% off now through Sunday April 1, 2012. Just enter the following promotional code when you are checking out: DLREPORT20
